Ginebra On The Lookout For New Import After Crawford Backs Out, Says Tim Cone
Spin.ph, Tuesday, 07-Jun-2016

BARANGAY Ginebra is on the lookout for a new import for the PBA Governors' Cup after original choice Drew Crawford backed out to give the NBA Summer League another shot.

Ginebra coach Tim Cone confirmed to SPIN.ph on Tuesday that Crawford will no longer play for the team, just five days after announcing a deal with the former Northwestern Wildcat in the team’s first practice for the season-ending conference last week.

“Drew Crawford backed out stating he wanted to play in the NBA Summer League,” said Cone.

Crawford, son of a veteran NBA referee, was initially tapped by Ginebra after management dropped its plan to bring back Othyus Jeffers, who had played for the Gin Kings in the Commissioner's Cup.

Crawford came up short of a stint in the NBA when he was signed then later waived by the Orlando Magic after playing for the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2014 Summer League.

Team sources said among the candidates for the Ginebra import job is Paul Harris, who, like Jeffers, had previously played for Talk 'N Text (now Tropang TNT).

Harris has had three stints with Talk 'N Text, the last in 2014 where he logged averages 25.62 points, 12 rebounds and 2.52 assists.

Sana si Josh Davis nalang yung import last year ng Meralco, perfect fit yon, o kaya si Gabe Freeman ulit kung pasok sila sa height limit.

Mukhang si Paul Harris na nga ang import ng Ginebra. Guard ang laro nito kumpara kay Jeffers na forward. Sana lang mas kailanganin natin ang threat sa labas kaysa yung malakas sa loob maglaro.
